“We are thrilled and delighted to welcome Jose Mourinho into the AS Roma family,” Roma president Dan Friedkin said in a statement.

“A great champion who has won trophies at every level, Jose will provide tremendous leadership and experience to our ambitious project. The appointment of Jose is a huge step in building a long-term and consistent winning culture throughout the club.”

Mourinho, who has also coached Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea, said, “After meetings with the ownership and (general manager) Tiago Pinto, I immediately understood the full extent of their ambitions for AS Roma. It is the same ambition and drive that has always motivated me and together we want to build a winning project over the upcoming year.”

Roma’s last Serie A title was in 2001 and the last Italian Cup title came in 2008.

They have had modest results recently, losing 6-2 in the Europa League semi-final first leg at Manchester United last week.
